Fresh beets anyone? How about tomatoes or carrots? We offer residents the opportunity to try their green thumb in our very own community garden. We offer ten 12 x 14 plots for residents to grow fresh flowers, vegetables and seasonal ground fruit.
On Saturdays, the TR Hiking Club meets for a variety of on- and off-site hiking trips. Hikes range from easy to difficult, with distances of 3 – 12 miles. Off-site hikes include outings to Thumb Butte, Lynx Lake, Mingus Mountain and Sedona.
Jake’s Corner – Dog Park
In conjunction with the Home Owners Association, Talking Rock offers a community dog park. Called Jake’s Corner, the park is perfect for all types and sizes of four-legged friends to exercise and socialize. Throughout the summer, pet owners meet for Thursday “Yappy Hour” and other weekly get-togethers.
Fishing at The Windmill Pond
Head over to the Windmill Pond for some summertime fishing. Adjacent to the 9th and 18th fairways, the pond is stocked with bass and bluegill for catch-and-release fishing. The area north of the pond is also open for fishing when the golf course is not in use (early mornings and late afternoons depending on activity).
Both mountain bikers and road cyclists meet Sundays for rides within the community and off-site. Talking Rock has a limited number of bikes for use, located near the Fitness Center and COOP’s Coffee Shop. The Club also offers maintenance and equipment seminars during the summer, and special outings in conjunction with Prescott area riding clubs.
Talking Rock seasonal residents are not just limited to folks from Phoenix, the midwest, or back east. We often are visited by local wildlife from deer and javelina to hawks and the occasional bobcat. There is always something to see and discover throughout Talking Rock landscape, which acts as a natural habitat for many nearby critters.
